ODD NOSDAM
T.I.M.E SOUNDTRACK
ANTICON

For last year’s (T.I.M.E) ‘This is My Element’ skate flick, the brand enlisted legendary prog-hop label Anticon to create a pioneering single-artist, original soundtrack. At the helm is Anticon’s veteran circuit-bender Odd Nosdam, fully embracing his muse to mine a rich vein of warm kickflip spiritualism. Grounded by the beautiful affinity that hip-hop rhythm enjoys with freestyle skating, a litter of analogue pops, textural quirks and ambient guitar wash become the alternating grain of aging asphalt. The drawback is that in order to avoid intruding on the onscreen craft, the sound is luxurious but frail too and the interludes – paralleling the edits and episodic changes of skater – don’t entirely make sense without the original visuals. Incidental music without the incident. John Calvert
